Words have definitions. You can act like different words all mean the same thing, but that would just be ignorance (no offense).

"Bashing" is defined as " a harsh, gratuitous, prejudicial attack on a person, group, or subject".

Do you honestly believe that an award winning (Pulitzer Prize, Emmy awards, Peabody Awards, Writers Guild of America Awards) and highly respected news source like Frontline is engaged in a prejudicial attack on the NFL?

It's called investigative journalism. The NFL is scared because they know Frontline is not some entertainment company that they can bully. They know Frontline has made a difference in the world and people pay attention to their stories.

Then the NFL is just a bunch of hypocrites to act like this issue is so important while undermining a well respected news organization from conducting a legitimate investigation into a story.

Protecting the brand is the same thing cigarette companies were doing, as well. I see the same with the NFL, unfortunately.
